First part installed for 2021! Acuity shifter cable bushings. Little bit of a pain to install but went smooth. Shifter feels more stiff, looking forward to driving the car in the spring.

On a side note, I have decided to put my CF fenders up for sale. It was a impulse buy back in November and I have since decided to go a different route with my car. DM me if you're interested in them, will ship at buyers expense.

Finally got around to doing the paint correction and ceramic coat! Super happy with the finished product considering this was my first time doing this. Can't wait until I can drive the car again, hopefully by mid April weather will be warmer and salt will be off the roads :)

Not much for updates, haven't bought any new parts for EvilR lately. Been working on the ITR just got the tires mounted today, used the CTR to haul them. So much room in these rigs!!! Love it.

Car is dirty I know, but weather here is terrible no point to wash it.

Since it's Thursday I wanted to post a throwback picture of when I received my CTR Back in 2019. Most people would never buy something in this condition but for me I seen the end result right from the beginning. Always look at the positive in life.

The car has been nothing but amazing and I am truly happy I never gave up on this build. #throwbackthursday

No changes for EvilR, I have just been enjoying the car how it is. This car has been super reliable no issues, I took it on a 3hr road trip 2 weeks ago works A1 only complaint I have which has been since day one is my loud annoying exhaust lol.. Highways is brutal. Hopefully one day I can upgrade to something more high end.

Not much for updates, car is stored for the winter. No huge plans for EvilR I started to build my EG this winter so the CTR is kinda on the back burner. I do plan on getting a set of JDM blue fog lights and center caps for my 57cr's.
Oh I cleaned up the interior a bit before storage haha.

Soon be time to take the car out of storage! I also entered it into Speed Sport 2022 for the first time, normally I put my EG in this show but it is still not finished. I will update everyone once my car is out of storage and at the car show come April :)
